Whats the biggest vehicle you have driven?
For me it's Tank Transporters & the odd wide load whilst driving HGV 1's.

Didn't actually drive this one but fitted the remote activation to allow it to go on its own.

A 7.5 ton lorry, I think that's what it was...the biggest lorry you can drive on an ordinary license anyway. Being "clever" I knew that you had to pull much further forward to avoid clipping the kerb when you turn left. Yes...I still clipped the kerb!

Actually, doing this has always made me admire the guys (and women of course, although driving big lorries tends to be a male occupation) that can drive, and reverse the big artics down a side street that I couldn’t get a car down!

but I once drove a 55 metre long seismic survey ship for 100 nautical miles. I cruised along at 10 knots while most of the 20-strong crew had supper, although someone who actually knew what he was doing watched me like a hawk, especially when I made a few impromptu course changes.

I can recommend it as a fun experience.
